Why not focus on Whitney's voice and her success, in addition to Bobby?

@ms. lee you are so right. I think her whole life would give us a view into who she really was behind the scenes. It may even get poor Bobbi Christina a wake up call and help her family heal. I mean just the relationship of her and Bobby isn't enough. Are they going to try to make it seem like Bobby was her down fall? I wonder who will they get to play her?

I personally don't want to watch a movie about Whitney Houston that *only* focuses on her relationship with Bobby Brown. The fuck? She was W H I T N E Y before Bobby.

That is a gorgeous pic of Angela...

I LOVE Whitney like a family member. She is sorely missed...

OFF topic: sex sells. I kno. But imo that's the cheap route OUT. Say what you will about Whitney, but she sold LOVE. Gave HOPE & was INSPIRING through that God given talent. You NEVER seen her pussy (and she was a crack head) and she won EVERY AWARD a FEMALE singer can win. FULLY clothed, just by opening her mouth and singing a song. And she was a very.beautiful.woman. insideand out.

There was more to Whitney than Bobby Brown...smh...expect this film to be all about, sex, lies, and drug abuse, while blaming Bobby to be her downfall, when in reality it wasn't!

I think that we can focus on her success but a big part of her carrer was with Bobby. We cant strip that history away because its a hard pill to swallow

Hmm I think it will have a similar storyline like What's Love Got To Do With It. I like Angela so I would love to see how she directs this.

Angela will do a good job!

I get what yall are saying but this is a Lifetime movie so their focus is not on her talent... If you watch Lifetime, then you already know what's up. I'm pretty sure someone will eventually get around to paying homage to Miss Whitney the Great in a full motion picture.

Whitney ain't been dead 3 years. Do we really need a biopic? What can be said that we don't already know???

So lifetime got this huh? You saw what they did with the Fantasia story. It really gave everyone in site on how fucked up Fantasia was. Good luck on this one. To be honest the Houston/Brown family is so fucked up they can really do a mini series on them that could last for at least 3 years.

Whatever Angela Bassett sells i'll buy period. If she directs, acts or produces I'm watching even if it's a flop. Though I'd prefer to see her on screen more often because, I just love to see this woman, there's just something about her...... they sure don't make them like this anymore.
By the way how old is she?

@11:02: Angela is 55

Damn that's a HOT 55:-) I suspect u love her for the same reasons I do ....intelligent, graceful, smart, well spoken, THAT FACE, THAT BODY , very believable/convincing actress and she's not a coon. Won't catch her schuckin and jivin. Admitted to having a surrogate. Relatable. I couldn't go on...great representation of black women :-)

I wanna add one more thing. I love her beauty because its attainable and realistic. That's lovin yourself , diet and exercise and good sleep

zeeedeee said...

@nasir ..I agree that relationship was a big part of her...she loved her some Bobby and wasn't afraid to tell it or show it..lifetime movies do get into sensitive issues so yea I'm all ears and eyes on this one

Angela will do a good job I'm sure, but a movie about her life sans Bobby would have been more embraced, who was she a young girl growing up? and what it was like being the superstar I would be more interested in her life as Whitney I don't think this Bobby piece is needed goddess knows we saw that fuckery finest reality show, and know of the foolery with them as man and wife. I hope what will be shown is she was on drugs long before Bobby came on the scene it was ugly how they used that man as a scapegoat, to cover up her carefully manufactured America's sweetheart image. I hope its also tastefully done and not sensationalized. Angela is well qualified for this project.

No one used bobby as a scapegoat. People just assumed instead of using their brains. But i will say bobby took whitney down more then she would have been if she would have been by herself. Bobby was what u call an enabler and fairweather friend. After he used Whitney millions to pay his six children back and current child support, he dumped her. that nigga was so low he hogged spit in Whitneys face right in front of Bobbi Kristis face. thats y his daughter dont respect him. i dont blame her. Rip Whitney

it's lifetime. of course they are gong to focus on the relationship part of her life. even stories about murders and killers they have to toss in some love twist. lol. at least the first story on whiteny's life will be by someone that worked with her professionally. i think angela will be fair. happy weekend!

Whitty Hutton was the female David Ruffin.
I just remember her sweating thru the oldies in the horrid last shows before Clive had RayJ put her out of her miserable Downlow Crackhead/Lesbo existence.
I remember her from that reality show and bless the dead but she was a pure asshole.
Bobby came off as verbally abused affable drunk but she was the clear cokefiend in the Fam.
